“The performance has no competition aspect to it so the students have the opportunity to be everybody’s fan and support each other,” Hutsell said.  ” As audience members they (performers) have the opportunity to see some of the things that make a group good or great, or maybe not quite there yet and hopefully each student can apply that to their own individual and group performance.”
